You may not like this answer but my vote is Excel. I can't imagine being an engineer in any field without knowing Excel.

Some sort of power flow software like Power Factory or Power World is used to determine power flows in the system and fault levels. The ability to calculate the fault level at a given node is very important to the protection engineer for the selection of Circuit Breakers and CTs as well as the setting of relays.
